    Classic horror film delivers on atmosphere

    The Universal Legacy Series for its monster series is a gem. As someone who grew up on "Shock Theater" in the early to mid-Sixties, I grew to appreciate the black-and-white classics. Not scary or gory by today's standards, they continue to evoke an eerie landscape which feeds into the dark side of the American psyche. Depression-era filmgoers got solace in Disney, who urged them not to fear the big bad wolf. Others sought out the big bad werewolf, vampire, or golem. Bela Lugosi patented the vampire count. The film on DVD is so crisp you can see the original grain. The Spanish-language Dracula delivers also, with or without subtitles (and everyone in the American hemisphere ought to be able to understand SOME Spanish, no? Dracula's Daughter satisfies, even factoring in the subtext referred to in The Celluloid Closet. The Philip Glass soundtrack rejiggered for the original film, while appropriate, is too loud and too clever by half to recommend. I have yet to watch Son of Dracula and House of Dracula, but like most franchise extensions, will probably offer less punch than Dracula or its Spanish cousin. Still, this collection is worth having, if, for nothing else, the innovations which created the cliches.
